Assurance in one
Through Achilles Assure, not only can you be confident your supply chain meets your sustainability goals, it helps you identify and mitigate risk in three ways:
We connect the best to the best. Through rigorous, industry-specific pre-qualification processes, as a buyer, you’ll know a supplier meets you own high standards – and your supplier doesn’t have to keep proving their credentials. This allows both sides to concentrate on what matters – like meeting sustainability goals and growing business.
Our business intelligence is built around collecting data that’s relevant to your sector, the region you work in and critical details like local legislation. This helps you mitigate risk by giving you a complete and up-to-date picture of a supplier’s operations, their exposure to risk and what that means for buyers.
But we don’t just use our resources for monitoring. We actively help suppliers identify opportunities to improve their operations – leading to longer lasting, more profitable relationships.
We connect hundreds of data points together to help you mitigate risk deep down in the lowest tiers of your supply chain. By understanding and identifying risk at this level, you can build more resilience into the chain and react swiftly to changes.
Insight beats hindsight
Valuable insights and business intelligence are the building blocks of supply chain resilience and efficiency. We can give you a unique view across your supply chain, and importantly, where the risks lie within it.
